Lighting

Surgical lighting can have substantial influence on the performance of an Ultra Clean Ventilation system and therefore the overall sterility of the operating room.  

In addition to the principle purpose of any surgical light, ie: to provide adequate levels of lighting for the clinical team, surgical lights can have a substantial influence on the performance of an Ultra Clean Ventilation system and hence the overall sterility of the operating room. 

Factors such as the light’s cross-sectional area, the shape of the light and the amount of heat it dissipates all have an influence upon the surrounding airflow.  This in turn impacts upon the ability of the UCV to operate effectively.
